“Wait for the ramp Morty…they love the slow ramp. It really gets their d*cks hard when they see the ramp just slowly extending down. GREETINGS!”

Releasing today at Daft Brewing – Slow Ramp, our Paloma Gose
“Slow Ramp was the perfect name for this beer, as the variety of flavours slowly ramp up and build to a grand crescendo as you journey through this delightful gose, ” CEO Adam Rondeau explained, “It also accurately captures the pace of Ryan’s journey into becoming a barely adequate brewmaster.”
“Slow Ramp is the second in Daft Brewing’s Umami series, with the first release being our True Level. The goal of the Umami series is to tie in that mythical fifth flavour, which is basically unheard of in beer today. Umami is depth of flavour. It provides a satisfying complexity that ties together other flavours. For example, when you’re cooking at home and your dish is missing something that you can’t quite place…it’s probably umami. I use all natural ingredients to add umami in this beer.” Head Brewer Ryan rambled almost incoherently, “I am most proud of the umami series because of the technical difficulty in creating something this unique and exciting, and because it is exactly the innovative style in which I make sure Daft excels.” he continued, making sure to get a quote in that allowed him to toot his own horn.
Similar to True Level, Slow Ramp is a sour beer made with Aji Amarillo peppers, pink Himalayan salt, and tequila oak. What sets it apart is the addition of grapefruit and lemon, instead of lime. The result is a delicious and refreshing but complex beer that is a delicate balance between the five basic flavours. This beer is reminiscent of a Paloma, which is a refreshing traditional Mexican cocktail.
“On your first sip you will notice the grapefruit and lemon that quickly transitions into subtle peppers and oak. After a couple sips you will notice the hint of sea salt and an essence of spiciness.” Nathan wisely explained, “It has a creamy and complex mouthfeel and finishes with a refreshing crispness and light acidity.”
Drawing inspiration from the name of the beer, Lindsay, Ryan’s wife, responded with her middle finger held high when asked to give her thoughts on Ryan’s latest work.
Slow Ramp is available now in Daft’s bottle shop. Make sure to grab a bottle quickly because, unlike the slowly extending ramp it was named after, these will be speeding off the shelves.
